Subject: Arthur W. Page Society Pres. Missing
Mr. Tom P. Nicholson
The Arthur W. Page Society
Writing to ask a favor. We're having a helluva time trying to get a response out of your association's president.
As you are likely aware, we ran a piece last Friday on your recently released white paper, "The Authentic Enterprise" (see http://tinyurl.com/266h4z ). In it we listed 20 questions for Mr. Bolton. We've tried variously to contact him; but regrettably have not heard back, not even a simple acknowledgment.
Frankly, we're rather miffed. Our piece was/is totally aligned with the spirit of the white paper as described by Bolton himself in the Forward: "Our objective is to stimulate dialogue – within companies, among leaders across a range of industries, and more broadly with influencers and stakeholders who care about the role of corporations. We hope such a dialogue will help all organizations – vast global enterprises and smaller local ones – to be more authentic."
In the spirit of dialogue, can you facilitate a response to our questions please?
Thank you kindly.
PS Just so we're clear, if by "authentic" Bolton was referring to some New Age iteration of our more traditional PR obfuscation, I totally understand. Sorry for the confusion. In that case, please disregard.
